• The Onion: Nation Once Again Comes Under Sway of Pink-Faced Half-Wit

    Behold, the pink-faced half-wit. One of our nation's most cherished archetypes (right up there with a the vaguely homo-erotic lumberjack and the oily park lurker)…

    The most recent pink-faced halfwit has reportedly captured the popular imagination through the conventional vehicles of a nationally syndicated talk-radio program and a cable news television show. According to media analyst Rebecca Ellington, the pink-faced half-wit has mesmerized the nation by spewing out hundreds of predictably reactionary and emotionally manipulative on-air diatribes…
